Israeli special forces killed a senior Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank. The Al-Aksa Brigade leader was shot dead Thursday in Nablus. Security sources said he was wanted for recruiting and equipping suicide bombers. In the Gaza Strip, tanks and troops withdrew from the district of Shajayia after an almost weeklong mission to uncover a tunnel dug by Palestinian terrorists intent on attacking an Israeli border position.
